During a christening your child will be baptized with water. It’s the start of an amazing journey of faith for your child and a special day for all your friends and family. We welcome enquiries about baptisms in any of the Team Churches. In the first instance please contact the Rector.
We accept all people for the Sacrament of Baptism, and an important part of baptism is the public welcome into the worshipping community, so our baptisms take place during a regular service.
The candidates and parents (and where possible godparents) will be prepared for the service, which includes looking at the service in detail and examining the significance of this movement forward in their spiritual life.
A Service of Thanksgiving can also be offered where appropriate.
If the family is living in a parish outside of the Team area, their Parish Priest will be contacted.
